Sam Pulitzer works predominantly with drawing, photography and installation, which are consistently coupled with written text. Often centred around ideas of insider/outsider-ism, distance, gaps and voids, his works often call into question the construction of authorship, in particular within the art world.

Produced exclusively for the ICA, this edition relates to a series of works produced for Pulitzer's solo exhibition, 'The Premise of a Better Life', at Kunsthaus Glarus. The edition, as with the larger series, subtitles a landscape from Pulitzer's home city, New York, with a pointed, direct question; here, "Have you known better but never bothered to protest?". There is uncertainty at whom the question is aimed – the viewer, the artist, their peers? The individual, the collective? This indeterminacy, married with the city-scape, provokes questions of individual existence within society; what sort of life do we lead, what life do we want to be leading?

Sam Pulitzer (1984, Fremont).
